Yesterday Joe and I went to see The Avengers.
Earlier in the year I lamented about the lack of movies I get to see, especially at the cinema. After writing it I vowed to see at least one on the big screen, and if it turns out to be only one (although there are a few more I hope to get to) I am glad it was The Avengers.
Edgar Wright wrote on Twitter ” ‘The Avengers’ is a big tub of popcorn heaven. A huge grin on my face throughout and much applause from the crowd too. Well done Mr. Whedon.” I couldn’t agree more and am having time coming up with a more apt description of the film.
As a Marvel fan, I am completely happy with the potrayal of the characters involved. I can’t fault any of the main cast’s performances. It was fun, it was funny, it was action-packed and it was exactly what I needed.
So I am Thankful.
Thankful to my mum for watching the kids for us so that Joe and I could go together. (We had originally planned to go separately, we both wanted to see it that much! )
Thankful for getting a car park not too far away.
Thankful that when we walked in the door to an announcement from a Cinema employee stating that the session we were going to was sold out, I was holding in my hand tickets Joe had bought on Monday. (Take that eye-rolling ticket girl!)
Thankful that in a packed cinema we were lucky to happen upon possibly the last two vacant seats next to each other left, and that they weren’t in the neck-ache section.
Thankful that the movie rocked!
Thankful to be able to dissect the movie with my beautiful Joe.
Thankful that the kids behaved for their Grandma.
and thankful I was able to top-off the day with another great episode of Game of Thrones.
Do you think comic book movies are a bit of a joke? That’s OK, different strokes and all that. But let the not-too-shabby-looking Tom Hiddleston try and persuade you otherwise; Superhero Movies like Avengers Assemble Should not be Scorned .
(Avengers Assemble is the movie’s UK title)
Do you like comic books? Or movies? Or comic book movies?
What are you grateful for this week?
